On Lionel Kearns

On Lionel Kearns is a binary meditation in Shockwave on the work of Vancouver poet Lionel Kearns. Kearns is one of few poets who has been thinking about digital poetics and the synthesis implied by electronic media since the sixties. On Lionel Kearns is a tribute to Kearns's polyartistic synthesis of arts, media, language and the binary, and extends his experimental poetics into software art. All texts by Lionel Kearns except where noted.
